democracy is wrestling with debt, japan, india, eu, u.s. this is an opportunity for us to provide global leadership. >> one problem that i have in just looking forward is, we had a plan they all voted for with sequesters an these were supposed to be the enforcement mechanisms. so who's going to believe them when they say we'll do this in six or nine months, when they're already running away from what they voted for? >> well, i would say this is kind of an escalation process and you could say, the sequester and fiscal cliff is working, at least it has everybody talking right now about something they didn't even want to talk about a year or so ago. i would say this comes in steps. the next step with a $4 trillion failsafe, you could -- simpson-bowles is in legislative language, demini chi-rivlin, but it puts it in a different position and you move the ball a heck of a lot farther down the field. >> mr. cody, as the ceo, what kind of treasury secretary do you want? what -- throw out some names. who do you think is the right person to lead us going forward at the most important critical econ

traditional forms of national power. emerging powers like india and brazil are gaining clout because of their size, of course, but more the size of their economies than of their military. more about the potential of their markets than their projection of what we used to think of as power. meanwhile, the global economic system, open, free, transparent, and fair, that fueled unprecedented growth is now under unprecedented pressure. trade imbalances, new forms of protectionism, the rise of state capitalism, and crippling public debt. finally, the traditional sources of america's global leadership are in need of renewal. a task for all of us. the cottage industry of cassandras and declinists have dramatically overstated this case, but it is true that the reservoirs of good will that we build up around the world during the 20th century will not and cannot last forever. new generations of young people do not remember gi's liberating their countries, or american development assistance changing the face of their economies were literally saving generations from hunger and disease. they are mo

in places like china and india. the sooner we can have substitute fuels -- in the immediate future that is natural gas. we have to be careful how it is extracted, and it can be extracted safely. it can be an enormous advantage to us. i was on a bus in portland that was powered by compressed natural gas. we can use it to power electric vehicles. there should be a parallel track developing renewables to be there when the gas it runs out or demand increases to the point where the price goes up. to power your vehicle on natural gas is the equivalent of $2 a gallon. it will be the same with home heating. getting off of oil should be the number one priority. >> senator dill? >> thank you. gas prices are a challenge to anyone in maine trying to take their kids to school or get groceries or go to work. i support the fuel efficiency standards that will lead to automobiles to rely on less fuel and will cost families less money. i am the only candidate in the race who opposes the keystone pipeline. i do not believe transporting tar sands is the way to get off of oil. i am opposed to fracking.
else and after all, it's less expensive to live in places like india where the stars in the movie end up gone. i am here today to talk about an alternative to either euthanasia or outsourcing, what soon will be a quarter of the population, and argue that the solution to much ails us as individuals in a society lays in rethinking the map of life, the map of life that was in many ways set up in three score and 10, which seems like a longer lives of the past century but is inadequate to the five score lifespans that more and more people will be living in the 21st century. half the kids born since 2000 the developed world are projected to see their 100th birthday so we can't just fold, spindle, made late stretch and extend this life course that really was set up for a very different arc of life to one that is really, has an extra decibel point, an extra zero to it. so i think what is happening, to really cut to the essence of what i'm saying today is that the nature of life is under every bed a radical transformation as the numbers are. all those numbers that we are so familiar with and t

in a box. it was not china, it would be india and countries in africa. it already is making products that are either american in concept or are just completely international products. host: scott, let me add this to the mix -- the reporter notes that this will presumably not be much appreciated by beijing. guest: burma is a place that china perceives as in its sphere of influence. particularly as a place to get the resources it needs. timber along the borders, oil. there has been a backlash inside burma which is why we saw political reform their last year which is the reason the president is going, against china. in the way it treats burma as it basically its backyard forest to cut down. point, the caller's every product that he described there would be a lot more expensive if not for china. he touches on some very important which was the implications of what nafta meant and what globalization more broadly means when it not well articulated by president clinton or subsequent presidents. president bush wanted a hemisphere-wide free trade summit. it is very dislocated, particularly on
this last global recession but without the economic growth of china and india, without hundreds of millions of newly minted middle- class folks who now buy american and european goods. imagine that. think about the last five years. rocks are preaches capitalism. well. sometimes i hear myself and i cannot believe it. commerce is a real pure that is what you're about. commerce, entrepreneurial capitalism takes more people out of poverty than aids. we know that. we need africa to become an economic powerhouse. it is not just in their interest. it is in our national security interest, too. we want to see the region to fill its potential. q uueque up the drum roll. you can if you like. enter our protagonist. enter the most powerful force for change on the continent. enter the loudest voice for progress. enter the nerd.

expectations towards the u.s. policy, india and those two do not easily coexist. as a policy of many years can be said in between those two longtime antagonists. you're going to end up disappointing both to some degree or another. and yet, one of the great challenges for public diplomacy is to bring the gap to train words indeed to narrow that to the extent possible. to sean's point, the opinion polling is not the be-all end-all, but it is a rominger do you need to pay attention to as you make sure that there is a public diplomacy to mention in the policymaking process, which is still one of the great challenges within the building all of us have worked in is to be taken into account what global expectations are for the next stage as judith set up the lone superpower and that enters into our thinking about how effective it is to kill or policy will be. to the point we run a bed a roller coaster, the challenge was the next dictations were so high coming into office and in fact in year one and the year two, there was in fact a restoration of some confident in the united states unpredictably as a

out of china, india and other parts of the developing world. we can't control a lot of the unrest in the middle east, that tends to contribute to the spike in prices or the volatility in prices. what we can control is how much we produce and contribute to that global marketplace. and that's why as an industry we believe that's where our focus should be. that's the one variable we have some control over and by producing other own, we hope we will put downward pressure on the price. host: since we've oversupplied the marketplace at home, would you say that the obama administration has been friendly to big oil? guest: we have some disagreements with the obama administration. most of what's occurred over the past few years to get us to our higher levels of oil and natural gas production have all occurred on private and state land. the congressional research service in a report just a few months ago reported that 96% of all the new development in the united states for oil and natural gas has been on private state land. the president, the administration has control over federal lands. t
college graduates, which is more than the entire u.s. work force. in five years, india will be producing five times as many college graduates as united states. these are the facts that drive the decisions we must make as we position penn state to succeed in the future. part of that planning will require getting out and staying in front of the information technology revolution, which has been among the most significant drivers of change in the last 15-20 years. it has also been like a runaway train. one response to the higher education crisis has been increased appeals from legislators and business leaders for higher education to increase online education. the hope is more students will receive college degrees and at less cost. but appropriately, the application of technology can improve learning higher educatio outcomes and to decrease the cost of delivering that education. so far, big savings have proven elusive. nonetheless, massive online courses are testing the market. dozens of universities, including mit, harvard, and stanford offer these classes prompting headlines like " college
that that is no longer the case. when you travel to china and india and brazil, to parts of the world where the emerging economies are growing, it should not be a surprise to you when you look at the dollars of investment that they have made into education, both at the k-12 and higher education levels. it is very consistent with what is happening with their economies as well. i am concerned about that. i know there are ways that we can fix this in the u.s.. it will take working together with policy makers, with academics, with folks in the technology in st. -- technology industry. there are some wonderful things that can happen going forward if we fill the gap in this country. i ask you on your way out to pick up "education, jobs and the american dream.
